As my Ol’ Pappy used to say, “Too Much Sugar Dor A Dime!”
Aside from capacity, why are there soooooo many different SD Cards!?
The more you read the more it’s all double-speak! I mean they say SD, HC, & EC – but you can buy same capacity in almost all!!
All have approx the same speeds!!
Just want the best for taking & saving photos – least chance of quality/defective screwups!!
DnC in MtP!
The best card for your camera is the one the camera manufacturer recommends.
The specifications on different cards are confusing. Different physical sizes, as well as capacities and speeds, are still evolving. Newer cards may not work in older cameras.
Stick to brand names like Lexar and Sandisk.
Here’s a good article that explains the different letters and numbers. https://www.digitaltrends.com/…..al-camera/
